LeeMcMee - Happy to hear your man is taking his 'prenatals'. You never know if it will help but what you do know is it def can't hurt. Men are wired so much differently than we are. It took my DH quite a while to get into the understanding that this may not 'just happen' and we have to do our part and be proactive with the things that we actually can control since there's so much that we can't.

Diedrek - I'm pretty sure my DH and I fall into that 'unexplained' category. All my tests are 'normal'. DH had a couple below average SAs but more recently his results are looking greaT as well. We're on cycle 16 and there's no clear reason why we can't get pregnant. It's almost more difficult because if there was a clear problem we could try things to fix it, but there's not so its just like shooting into the dark every time.

AFM: It's CD6, day 4 of 5 on 2.5mg of Letrozole. Can't say that I've experienced any real symptoms at all. Which is good. I've read so many women who have said they only get 1 mature follicle on Letrozole. I'm hoping for 2, the point for me is more targets as I already O on my own every month. I've seen a lot of women say that it can increase the quality of your egg, only on forums though. I've nothing from doctors backing that up. If I only produce 1 follie, I pray the quality aspect is true and hopefully that's what will get me our BFP.

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Stella - Thanks FX this is what finally does it for me, but who knows. I've feeling good though with the amount of BDing we are doing now following SMEP. If I get prego this cycle, it's all thanks to you! Thanks for liking my long posts and I'm not really sure when I O. It's all over the place, but as I look back at previous cycles it's around CD15-20 on average I guess. Below is my previous cycles. You can tell Jan - April were all screwed up from getting off the pill and also having a cyst. FX with your symptoms!

My O days:
Jan 28 - Ended BCP (took the first week of pills before stopping)
Feb - CD9
Mar - CD23
April - CD29-31 (I never got a +, but FF was guessing these dates)
May - CD15
June - CD20
July - CD13-15 (aka tomorrow - Fri, FF is estimating)

Nix - Thank you! I thought of it right then because he had been pissed off at his game (Metal Gear Solid) because he couldn't understand why he was beating some guy, and it made me think that that's a good way to explain to him so he'd get it. Steal it I'd be flattered!

Die - Glad to see you still around! Well with everything going on, you can just saying 'not trying, not preventing' since you wont be hardcore symptom spotting and tracking everything but also not preventing and when u least expect it hopefully that will be your time my friends all say once they started stressing they got prego, yeah yeah yeah lol I'm still stressing haha.

Dream - Yeah I am happy that he started taking them because it can't hurt and mainly now because it shows that he is trying on his end as well

AFM... first off, I can't believe this thread has already gotten this far! I used to just reply to random threads and didn't steadily follow any until this one I love it.

I'm at CD13. I THINK I might be Oing or about to. I haven't gotten a positive test yet, but this morning's looked good (below) but I try not to test in the morning and stick with afternoon. I tested this afternoon and it was lighter, but I think it was diluted from water and lunch drinks. I also have a lot of ewcm today and I never get that! Also had a lot 2 days ago I have more confidence in my body this cycle. It seems to be doing things correctly. I also have a dip in my BBT as you can see below. I forgot to temp yesterday. So that's it for now still on the 'every other day' BDing schedule until I see a positive OPK.

Dream - I'm dumb and thought it was negative lol and stuck with the SMEP schedule, but we are going to BD tonight and the next couple nights because according to my Glow app, yesterday's test was positive! I am an idiot and didn't know that Glow will take pix of your tests and analyze them oy!! Had I know this 6 months ago... posted pix below. So Glow thinks I'm Oing today and I'll type below why I also think I am.

Bema - FX! Hopefully you can get your BFP in the next few days

AFM... I'm CD14 and I think I JUST Od! I'm a dumby and thought yesterday's OPK was BFN, but as I JUST realized that my Glow app will take a pic of OPKs and analyze them... it thinks the test was positive and that I am Oing today. About an hour ago I just started getting pains down there on only the left side and smaller amount of ewcm, but I have it. In a couple days I will be able to see crosshairs on FF app and see when they think I Od. Pix below from Glow app. Gonna BD tonight, tomorrow, and Friday night (hopefully... husband will be at the Red Sox game then his dad is coming back to our house with him and staying for the weekend for fun lol we live an hour away but his dad lives in the city and we live in the woods and he likes staying over for fun and to go fishing).

Die - Is it ever the "right" time? Lol. You'll have a new house for a new baby! And I certainly hope not... "Unexplained infertility" is the most frustrating thing I ever heard. But even then, lots of those couples go on to get pregnant!! I think it will happen for you, though.
We love you too!! I read other threads but this is pretty much the only one I am involved in. This group has that something special.

Bema - That sounds so promising!! 8dpo is too early. Try again in a couple days. Fx!

Lee - At least you caught the day of! And you had the days before, which is even better. That third day is where l fell apart with SMEP lol. But i think it's just to try to catch the egg if you O a little late and since your signs are so promising I think you will be covered. Now the long part! Have fun with your FIL - it'll be a good distraction.

AF arrived this afternoon, right on time for O on CD16. I wasn't really expecting anything else so I'm just glad it didn't keep stalling haha. Debating preseed, meanwhile, because several months after quitting bcp I'm still not getting CM like what others describe. I mean, it's not dry but I've never used the word "wet" either so... Eh, probably couldn't hurt. Meanwhile if it works this month my due date would be my brother's birthday and he would just melt haha.

I am doing outside marketing today and it's soooo hot. About tonwrap things up. Can't wait for fall!

Stella - and as if it weren't confusing enough, I think I'm actually Oing NOW... lol I will explain below for everyone. Sorry to hear that AF arrived hate that. And screw the heat as well! I hate heat lol.

AFM... I'm CD 16 and my body is so strange!! It seems that every month I have an early LH surge and then another LH surge a week or so later. I THOUGHT I Od a couple days ago as I got what seemed like a positive OPK (you guys saw) and lots of EWCM, but this morning I checked just in case since I seem to get multiple surges, and it's even MORE positive than the other and the line is slightly darker than the control line I have some clear ewcm mixed with white. We have still been BDing every other day, so that's good. OH I also meant to tell you ladies that on almost a daily basis I have been drinking pineapple juice (130 calories oops) mixed with cranberry (5 calories). My cousin, who has 4 kids, swears by pineapples for fertility. I mixed with cranberry for my own taste and have also read good things. She says eat pineapple, but I figured juice is good too.

So below are my tests and I labeled them. I also got a slight dip in my temp this morning and also a couple days ago when I got the other slightly positive OPK. O day is actually right on time if it is today. Don't worry about the times on my pictures. I was just estimating this mornings test times, but they were like a half hour apart. I put different times on different pix by accident.
